Reality star Krisily Kennedy, who’s appeared on Bachelor Pad and The Bachelor, has come out as bisexual.

Now, if you’re a lesbian like me who doesn’t tend to tune into reality dating shows that -- save for my being inexplicably drawn to this summer’s Love in the Wild – I had to take to Google  to discover just what Bachelor Pad is all about. A spin-off of the perennial fave The Bachelor, Bachelor Pad tosses several of the parent show’s all-stars into a co-ed Malibu mansion where they are forced to live in the same room and compete with each other on a series of challenges.

Kennedy, who appeared in The Bachelor’s seventh season, came out as bisexual at the GLSEN Respect Awards in Los Angeles Friday, according to Life & Style.

"I'm bisexual," Kennedy said, adding that she started dating women three years ago and that she had recently broken up with her girlfriend of a year.

"I'm completely open to still dating men," Kennedy said. "For me, this is all very new, and I was very lucky to have had my friends and family behind me."

The reality star also said she’s looking for love and to settle down. "I want to fall in love with anyone and I don't care who they are," Kennedy said. "I just want love. I want long-term commitment. I really want those things and if people open their hearts to it, you can find that with anyone."

Kennedy also said that she’d like to work with the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), which works to ensure safe schools for all students.

"I feel like there are teenagers unnecessarily killing themselves," Kennedy told Life & Style, "I personally have never felt like that, but I'd like to be able to go in to schools and talk to kids to try and change their minds."
